Fiddle Creek is a charming tent-only campground in the Tahoe National Forest in Camptonville, California. The camp's 15 sites lie along the northern edge of the North Yuba River, which is just a short walk away. Campsites have plenty of privacy thanks to the generous blackberry bushes surrounding them (which make for a great snack!), and taller pine, oak, locust, and maple trees provide lots of shade. Like most campgrounds in the Tahoe National Forest, dogs are welcome to join their owners but must be kept on a leash and always cleaned up after.
Your campsite at Fiddle Creek will come with a picnic table and a campfire ring. Potable water is available for cooking or drinking, but there are no showers or flush toilets. The campsites and restrooms at Fiddle Creek Campground are ADA accessible, as are some of the nearby trails. The $24 entrance fee is the daily fee for the campground, but people over 62 may be eligible for a discount.
Campers have all sorts of opportunities to have fun on the North Yuba River during their visit. Choose from fishing for rainbow trout, swimming, kayaking, tubing, rafting or even panning for gold in the water. You can also access the North Yuba Trail from your campsite, and this seven-mile dog-friendly trail can be used for hiking or mountain biking. For a longer excursion, you and your dog can hike the 13.1-mile Fiddle Creek Ridge Trail for a challenging workout with incredible scenery.
There are paw-lenty of other hiking trails around the campsite, and hunting is permitted in some nearby areas. Be sure to wear orange when you hike during hunting season, and always keep your dog on a leash on the trails. Lots of bears call the Tahoe National Forest their home, so always store your food in bear-safe lockers and properly remove any waste during your stay.Make sure you book your stay at Fiddle Creek Campground well in advance so you don't miss out on a spot at this furrific place!
